Colonial Collision With a Cat Box!

Shawn: What's the first thing you think about upon witnessing this setting? That's right -- colonial furniture is back! The WASPy emotional austerity and the sense of elder class boundaries gone to seed in modern suburban limbo is so sublimely barren. Remember the good old days when savages, and provocative, unmarried women were openly scorned without recourse and Lucifer himself lurked behind every poplar tree? Like you, I miss those times, and so there's no more ignoble fate for the Spirit of The Mayflower than to be condemned to stark, prefab domesticity. Yep, somehow nothing screams the death knell of The Age of Innocence quite like a kitty litter box being placed so brazenly in the parlor.

That the litter itself is nearly the same shade as the carpet?

Wanton!
